A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

The Two Towers: I saw the latest installment of Director Peter Jackson's epic trilogy on Wednesday. Yes, I know it's two days later -- but I've needed the time to really digest it. The film is excellent, and should, once again, be nominated for a fistful of Oscars.

The Two Towers is about the primal battle of Good vs. Evil (as is the rest of the trilogy). And several times during the film I found myself noticing an eerie parallel between Man's battle with Sauron and Western civilization's battle with Islamofascist terrorism.

The special effects, costumes and make-up artistry, were amazing in the first installment -- but they're even better in the second.

The battle for Helm's Deep is amazing, likely one of the best sequences I've ever seen on film -- far better than anything in the Star Wars movies. (I know that's sacrilege for some, but get over it.)

One word: Ents!

Gimli's got some really good one-liners.

Eowyn (aka Miranda Otto) -- hubba, hubba. (Most of the pictures over at imdb don't do her justice.)

In short, it's well worth the $7-$10 dollars it'll cost you.

One more year until the finale -- I can't wait.
